180 members of the Japanese press were lucky enough to attend a special Square Enix and Sony conference for the upcoming Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy XIII. The dev team, including procuer Yoshinori Kitase and director Motomu Toriyama, were on hand to present the game while answering some burning questions the press and fans might've had. Burning questions like whether the game would include any costumes that show off Lightning's armpit.
We'll get to that later. For now, however, fans looking forward to the final chapter of Final Fantasy XIII might be interested to learn of the four explorable continents and Vanille's reappearance.
Like Fang, Snow, and young Hope have already, Vanille is returning. She's been sheltered by a religious group called "Salvation Council" in Luxerion, according to Toriyama. Other details regarding Vanille will come at a later date.
Among the four continents, the Dead Dunes was mentioned, a large desert. Luxerion and the city of Yusnaan will also be locations Lightning visits. The Wildlands were mentioned as well, but not detailed. Overall, expect a feel very similar to Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim.
Some of you may be glad to know that Lightning's breasts have increased in size, too. During the conference, someone asked, “Has Lightning’s bust size really gone from a C to a D-cup since the first two games?”
In response, Square confirmed that they did expand Lightning's bust in order to fit some of the more revealing outfits thrown into the game. Lightning Returns will feature over 80 alternate costumes, so seeing her cleavage might be motivation for some players out there.
Another odd question asked was, "I think that one of Lightning`s most attractive features is her armpit. Is there a costume that will show off this part of her when she does her victory pose?"
To that, Square Enix confirmed the revealing outfits, answering, "Something that shows off her armpit..? Well, there are some revealing sets of costumes. I’m sure you’ll enjoy those."
